Toll Rates Changing on Mobility Authority Corridors

(Austin, Texas)— The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (Mobility Authority) announced that new rates on 183A Toll, 290 Toll, 71 Toll Lane, and the MoPac Express Lane will take effect January 1, 2020.The 1.71 percent increase, consistent with the Consumer Price Index, will equate to rates approximately $0.02 – $0.06 greater than the current rates at each toll gantry for customers with electronic tags driving two-axle vehicles. The rate increase on the MoPac Express Lane only applies to the base, or minimum rate. Rates on the 45SW and 183 Toll roads will not be increased, as those facilities have been open for less than a full year.

Pay By Mail customers, or customers who drive on toll roads without an electronic tag, pay rates that are 50 percent higher than rates paid by tag holders. As a partner in the Central United States Interoperability Hub, the Mobility Authority accepts any of the following tags on its toll roads: Texas Department of Transportation’s TxTag, Harris County Toll Road Authority’s EZ-TAG, North Texas Tollway Authority’s TollTag, Kansas Turnpike Authority’s K-TAG, Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s PIKEPASS, as well as Bancpass.

There is also an option for customers who wish to pay discounted toll rates without getting an electronic tag: Prepaid Registered Accounts. This allows customers without an electronic tag to have their tolls paid automatically rather than waiting to receive a toll bill in the mail. Customers can opt in online or over the phone, add $25 to their registered account, and begin driving Mobility Authority-operated toll roads hassle-free. Registered account holders receive a 25 percent savings on Pay By Mail toll rates. Customers without a tag who choose not to opt in for a Prepaid Registered Account can pay their toll bill in person, over the phone, online, or by mail.

The toll rate increases are part of a Mobility Authority policy that adjusts rates annually in line with inflation to avoid larger increases every five years. To inform customers of this rate change, the toll rate signs will be updated in advance of the rate increase. However, customers will continue to be charged the lower 2019 rates through December 31, 2019.
